OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY LEGAL SPECIALISTS
Legislative Compliance Specialists (hereafter referred to as LCS) assists clients with legal matters in the areas of Occupational Health, Safety and Environment.
Health and safety is a multi-disciplinary topic that requires knowledge of a wide range of subjects: law and compliance, risk/safety management, occupational health and hygiene, ergonomics and human factors. The volume of health and safety legislation has increased rapidly because of national legislation, the social dimension of South Africa, and case law. Many areas that were considered straightforward have become increasingly complex and more detailed, i.e. Construction.
Any organisation needs to take health and safety legislation beyond mere compliance. To add real value they should be capable of anticipating and evaluating proposed changes in the law, so that the organisation can plan, prepare and implement sound policies. LCS can advise clients about the implications of existing and impending legislation on resources and business objectives.
We focus on providing clients with specialised legal support, backed by a legal team with significant and specialised experience. Our staff is a multi-disciplined team of lawyers, safety professionals and project managers.
